In the beginning, you may need to wear your dentures all the time, including while sleeping. Your Denturist may advise you on whether you should remove your dentures before you go to sleep. It may not always be necessary to remove your dentures at night, but doing so will allow your gums to rest as you sleep. This also allows for your tongue to stimulate the soft tissues of your mouth to normalise blood circulation. If you do remove your dentures, they should be kept moist to prevent the denture material from drying out and changing shape. You could store your denture overnight, using a denture container in water, or a polythene bag with some dampened cotton wool in it, or in a suitable overnight denture-cleaning solution.
